Two SCDOT Workers Killed in Hit and Run

Two SCDOT workers have been killed in a hit and run in Aiken County Monday morning.

Aiken County, SC (WLTX) - Two South Carolina Department of Transportation workers have been killed in a hit and run in Aiken County Monday morning.

WRDW reports that a three-person crew was working along Augusta Road when they were struck by a tan sedan. 

Two of the workers died from their injuries shortly afterward. The other employee only suffered minor injuries to his hand. 

The workers who died have been identified as 54-year-old Anthony Redmond and 64-year-old Robert Clark. 

In a statement released Tuesday afternoon, Secretary of Transportation Christy Hall said the entire agency is stunned by tragic incident. "Our SCDOT family has suffered the loss of two of our team members this morning. While we mourn these losses, I would urge all South Carolinians to be cautious at all times while on the roads, and use extra care when approaching work zones," said Hall. "The men and women of SCDOT are dedicated public servants and we want them all to return home each night to their families." 

State troopers say the vehicle, a tan 2004 Pontiac Grand Prix, has been found in Aiken County, but it's unclear if the driver has been located and if that person is facing charges.
